Antwerp, September 14th, 2017 – Today Belgian scale-up Unifly opens their next international office in Copenhagen, Denmark. Joining us from the Danish Naviair is Ronni Winkler Østergaard who will be spearheading our expansion into the Nordic as the Regional Manager for Scandinavia and the Baltics.
Unifly specialises in Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) software. With nearly 20 years of experience in air traffic control, Ronni is an expert in drone integration. The last three years Ronni has been involved in the safe integration of drones, as a drone program manager for Naviair. He also participated in international working groups including the European aviation R&D program SESAR and SESAR 2020.
“One of the reason I decided to join Unifly is that they have the right vision. I see Unifly as one of the key elements in the safe integration of drones in the airspace. ” says Ronni.
“Drones are a new emerging technology in the aviation world. They offer a huge potential for economic growth and innovation, new business models and new services for citizens. The infrastructure needs to be in place to give drones the opportunity to become a disruptive technology that impacts the world in a positive way. This is what Unifly offers and I am excited to be a part of that. My goal is to give drone technology the opportunity to integrate safely into the world of aviation.”
The new office is located at SingularityU, the innovation hub in the heart of Copenhagen Science City. SingularityU is home to social impactors, fast growing startups, corporates innovating on the edges, robots, biohackers, gadget gurus, thought leaders, researchers, futurists, and much, much more.
Unifly strongly invests in growth. With over 20 employees in the company today, by the end of 2018 the Unifly workforce will increase to almost 50. Unifly is looking for extra talent to strengthen the team.
